HowTo / Notes

HOWTO install Condor and get dedicated server working (1.1.12)
  1. I suggest a clean WINEPREFIX for Condor, just use an "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_condor/ wine some.exe" instead of "wine some.exe"
  2. Installing:
    1. Now open up some Terminal/Shell/bash/whatsoever and cd to the directory the Condor-Setup is in. For example, if it is on your Desktop, type "cd ~/Desktop".
    2. Run Setup with wine: "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_condor/ wine CondorSetup.exe".
    3. Follow the Instruction on the screen.
  3. Once you've got Condor installed, you have to set wine up:
    1. Copy "d3dxof.dll" and the Content of this archive to your system32 folder. Since you use a different WINEPREFIX, you'll find it here: "~/wine_condor/drive_c/windows/system32". Namely, you have to copy these 6 files: "d3dxof.dll", "dplaysvr.exe", "dplayx.dll", "dpnet.dll", "dpnhpast.dll" and "dpwsockx.dll"!
    2. Now open up "winecfg", remember your WINEPREFIX: "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_condor/ winecfg":
      • I suggest using a virtual Desktop for this: Go to "graphics" tab, check the box, thats it!
      • Now go to "libraries", add "d3dxof.dll", "dplayx.dll", "dpnhpast.dll", "dpwsockx.dll" and "dpnet.dll". It should look like this:
      • Click OK to confirm your changes.
      • Now you'll have to register dpnet. To do this, run: "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_condor wine regsvr32 dpnet.dll". If this fails, please check library overrides again. If it still does not work, just ask here.
    3. Now you're ready to run Condor!
      1. cd to Condor folder: "cd ~/wine_condor/dri[TAB]/Pro[TAB]/Con[TAB]/" should do the Job. (full path would be: "cd ~/wine_condor/drive_c/Program\ Files/Condor/")
      2. Start Condor by typing: "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_condor/ wine Condor.exe" or the dedicated server via "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_condor/ wine CondorDedicated.exe".
    Of course you can create a simple bash-script or shortcut, just keep in mind to cd first!
HOWTO : Get NMEA-output working
  1. To connect a nmea-compatible device, first open up "system.reg" in your favorite editor. (Usually in "~/.wine/")
  2. Paste the following lines somewhere in the file, e.g. at the end:
    < Add more here if needed >
  3. Now close your editor and start "Condor.exe"
  4. In Options menu, check "Enable NMEA-output" and choose your COM-port. Connect your device to the serial port

Kicked from the server
by Andrea G. on Monday April 2nd 2012, 5:18
Hi all, I have installed Condor in Ubuntu 11.10 and patched to version 1.1.5 but when i start multyplayer and i try to join a Server, it kick me out because it detect an modified Condor.exe.
But i have an original copy license and if i try to join a server in windows (i have a dual boot PC with windows and ubuntu) it works.
What did i do wrong?
RE: Kicked from the server
by Sebastien Chaumontet on Monday April 2nd 2012, 13:47
There was 2 versions of patch15 released in few days.
Try downloading curent patch 15.
Or this may be server which is not up to date.
RE: Kicked from the server
by Andrea G. on Tuesday April 3rd 2012, 5:12
Thank you Sebastien, problem solved.
I have just download again the patch and install it, now it works :-D
it works?
by Pekka Rinne on Thursday November 25th 2010, 11:30

Are you really able to play it? nvidia/ati?

For me really nothing works except main manu nor have I ever heard anyone really being able to play condor in wine. Some very old versions somehow worked but not reliably.

Does network play work?

RE: it works?
by Nik on Friday November 26th 2010, 11:16
Well yes. Done with ATI (5870).

I tried it from time to time. I was very surprised at all :)
With current dev version 1.3.7 it does not work.

Yes, I made online flights (One was 360km triangle in sw germany, 3 hours something) without any problems.

greets, Nik

With nvidia no luck: GL_INVALID_OPERATION
CondorDedicated require a Condor launch
by Sebastien Chaumontet on Saturday February 28th 2009, 8:15
To run CondorDedicated.exe you need to launche at least one time Condor.exe.

No licence seems required to use CondorDedicated.

Have you managed to start condor in winedbg? Mine crashes at startup in "continue" command to "First chance exception: page fault".
RE: winedbg
by John Haywards on Sunday January 11th 2009, 5:17
Same here...
RE: winedbg
by Pekka Rinne on Sunday January 11th 2009, 15:39
It seems to be because condor is checking for debugger and refuses to run if such is detected.
RE: winedbg
by John Haywards on Sunday January 11th 2009, 15:43
You could confirm this by checking in Windows, just load in a debugger such as "Ollydebug" and heck if it starts...
Still no success with joystick
by Jyge on Wednesday December 3rd 2008, 12:13
Eveything else is ok but I am not getting my joystick to run with Condor. I have now just d3dox.dll and dpnet.dll overrides but no go. The setup screen won't go to edit input dialogue so I can not really assign anything...
RE: Still no success with joystick
by John Haywards on Wednesday December 3rd 2008, 12:19
Please test another application, e.g.:

Do you have your Joystick working on Linux?
RE: Still no success with joystick
by Jyge on Wednesday December 3rd 2008, 13:31
Hmph...problem solved. I installed the latest patch for Condor and now it works. So it has to be patched before it works - otherwise it seems really working fine. I think better than Silver in fact...
RE: Still no success with joystick
by John Haywards on Wednesday December 3rd 2008, 14:45
Well, you still need native libs, e.g. dxof
Additionally, dedicated-server won't run for now...

I decided to choose silver for now... ;)
If dedicated server would run, I would choose gold, here' the ratings:

Black screen ingame
by John Haywards on Friday September 26th 2008, 14:11

Some said, they only see a black screen ingame! I only get this when setting resolution to more than 1152x768... (all windowed)
Does this work for you?

for using the POV there is a hack out there! Check:
"Workaround for hat switch"

At last I got a question:
Any workaround for flickering runways?
RE: Black screen ingame
by Pekka Rinne on Monday February 23rd 2009, 14:53
POV now worked without hack, version 1.1.15 & Lenny & MS FFB2. All other bugs remain..
